Taylor Lorenz, a reporter for The Hill who covers the pro-Trump Right, has undisclosed ties to failed Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, according to a 2014 POLITICO interview.
In the interview with POLITICO’s Capital Staff, Lorenz, who was the head of social media for the Daily Mail at the time, bragged about the managerial role she played in then-Massachusetts Senator Kerry’s communications shop:
When reached for comment, Lorenz initially denied having worked for John Kerry and asked GotNews where it got that information.
After GotNews pointed her to her own 2014 POLITICO interview, Lorenz confirmed its accuracy, telling GotNews “Ahh yeah I interned for Bob Shrum, a political consultant when I was a teen, but not for the campaign.” Shrum is a prominent Democratic political consultant famous for having won zero out of eight elections in which his candidates have run.
“As I said, I ‘helped manage communications,’ in the sense that I interned for one of his political consultants tasked with those responsibilities. I never worked for a campaign, was never paid by a campaign, my internship was a volunteer unpaid internship. I volunteered a lot of places in high school and college on both sides of the political spectrum,” Lorenz explained.
GotNews could not find any conservative cause, candidate, or group for which Lorenz volunteered. When asked to provide GotNews with an example, Lorenz declined. “Do your own research,” Lorenz told GotNews.
Lorenz, however, took issue with the notion that she has ties to Kerry: “I have zero ties to John Kerry. I never had ties to John Kerry. Look around all you want you will never find any evidence that I ever worked for John Kerry,” Lorenz later told GotNews, seemingly contradicting her comments to POLITICO in 2014, in which she claimed to have “helped manage communications for John Kerry’s presidential campaign.”

Lorenz currently covers national politics for The Hill and recently reported on former Breitbart Editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ Berkeley Free Speech Week. The Hill drew heavy criticism for falsely labeling the highly anticipated pro-First Amendment series “an alt-right event”:
After UC Berkeley administrators successfully prevented Yiannopoulos’ event from happening, Yiannopoulos held a press conference in which he called Lorenz out to her face, railing against her “bullsh*t charges,” and telling her that her coverage “is designed to suggest that I am, or have some sympathy with, white nationalists or white supremacists. It’s f*cking disgusting.”
